In 2016, the Mayor’s Rodeo for Recreation in Asbury Park reached its goal of raising enough funds so no child had to be turned away from the city’s summer recreation program in 2016 and 2017.
With over $40,000 raised, more than 600 children attended the six-week summer camp program in those two years. This endeavor would have been impossible without the generous donations received.
The next Rodeo for Recreation is being held April 19 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Stone Pony.
